In the Journal of The Clan Campbe3ll Society (NA), Volume 26, Winter
1999, Number 1, on page 44 in the Library Report there is an item that could
be misleading for some. It is in the French F. Campbell, Jr., Campbell
Family History. In the Kanawha River County of Virginia (WVa) there was a
John Campbell, he was born: March 5, 1758 and died: May 18, 1840. He
married: Nancy Hughes. His last son named Robert was born: in 1808 and
died: May 27, 1891. He married: Eliza Jane Walkup.
The John Campbell and George Robert Campbell in the Journal are not any
relation of these Campbell.

From the 1100,s until now new years day 1999 we have been a family
From our genesis with Eve and Gillespic we have grown from these two to
hundreds of thousands some say millions. From Sir Neil Campbell at
Bannockburn to the Campbells who fought on both sides at the battle of
Culloden we have helped sustain
Scotland. From then until now we have helped not only Great Britain but we
frontiered the English speaking world, the United States,Canada and Australia.
Campbells have fought and died in the wars of all these nations. When the war
was over we helped make the peace. May we continue to make peace in the

Patrick Campbell was a man of high birth and noble character. The
following papers which were found among the records of his son will serve
to give an insight into his personality:

DUNCAN PEARSALL CAMPBELL
Sometime after the death of his father and mother (Sarah Pearsall
Campbell) Duncan Pearsall Campbell became entitled to a share of his
deceased grandfather's estate in Scotland. So he forwarded a paper

"No matter where you've been --- here you are."
I am interested in learning about my maternal grandparents, Alexander
Campbell and Mary O'Connor. They lived in County Fermanagh, perhaps
near Beagh (also known as Bigh), Coa (near Enniskillen). Their
children were Catherine (my mother), Patrick, Alexander, John, Mary
Ann, Hugh, Brigid, Magdalen, and Charles. Alexander Campbell's
mother's maiden name (my mother's paternal grandmother) was Bowers.
Mary O'Connor's mother's maiden name (my mother's maternal
grandmother) was Carolan. Catherine (my mother) was born in 1890.
She emigrated to the U.S., where she married James McCann (my father,
who also was born in Fermanagh). Her brothers Patrick and Alexander
also emigrated to the U.S.; Patrick married Catherine Donnelly;
Alexander married Julia Cronin. I would greatly appreciate any
information that anyone may have about my maternal grandparents and
I'm searching for DELMOUNT and PERMELIA (BENNETT) CAMPBELL. I know very
little about them except where they are buried. Their children are MARTHA,
ESTHER,b.1825 ELLEN AND JAMES, b.1831. They lived in Durand township,
Winnebago County, Illinois around 1865 as this is when Martha died there.
Would appreciate all and any info on this family. Thanks so much. Lori

History of Indian Territory
J. L. CAMPBELL
Texas has furnished many of the leading residents of the Indian Territory,
among which number is J. L. Campbell, who now resides in Minco. He was born
in the town of Morgan, Bosque County, Texas, on the 17th of July 1872, and is
a son of J. M. Campbell. The public schools of his native state afforded the
educational privileges which he enjoyed in his youth and which fitted him for
life's practical duties. In 1888 he came to the Territory settling in the
Chickasaw nation, where he has resided continuously since, covering a period
of thirteen consecutive years. He is a very successful farmer and stockman
and is the owner of thirty-one hundred and thirty acres, all but ten acres of
which are under cultivation; and he has two thousand acres in pasture, and
keeps on hand about eight hundred head of cattle. In addition to his
agricultural pursuits Mr. Campbell does an extensive business as a contractor
and hauling and building tanks. It is evident at a glance that a large force
of men are necessary to cultivate his extensive farm and care for his stock.
He keeps his place in good condition and the work of improvement and progress
is being continually carried forward and attended with prosperity.
On the 22 of January 1893, Mr. Campbell was united in marriage to Miss Annie
Catherine Denny, a native of Burlington, Kansas, and a daughter of George and
Kate Denny. Four children grace their marriage: Charlie, George, Henry Lee,
Irene and Francis. They are also rearing a girl named Pearl Snyder. They
have a pleasant home in Minco and enjoy the friendship of a large circle of
acquaintances by whom they are held in high esteem.

History of Indian Territory
J. M. CAMPBELL
Almost every state in the nation has furnished its representatives to the
Indian Territory among the prominent men who are now enumerated among the
successful and enterprising citizens of the Chickasaw nation is J. M.
Campbell, who was born in Louisiana on the 14th of October 1847. His father,
L. J. Campbell, was a native of Wayne County, Mississippi, and served for
about three years in the Confederate army. He was a farmer by occupation,
following that pursuit throughout his active business career. His death
occurred in the Choctaw nation. His wife, who bore the maiden name of Ellen
Foster, was a native of Holmes County, Mississippi, and their marriage was
celebrated in Louisiana, after which they removed to Texas and subsequently
came to the Choctaw nation at an early period in its development. Mrs.
Campbell was a daughter of James Foster, a Choctaw Indian, who died on Little
Black Creek, in Mississippi. The marriage of the parents of our subject
resulted in the birth of seven children, of whom four are now living. Mrs.
Campbell died near Paris, Texas.
In taking up the personal history of J. M. Campbell we present to our readers
the life record of one who has a wide acquaintance in this portion of the
country. He was educated in the common schools of Texas and came to the
territory about 1880, locating in the Choctaw nation, whence he afterward
returned to Texas. In 1888 he came to the Chickasaw nation, locating on a
ranch of about eighteen thousand acres, where he carries on an extensive
cattle business. He and his son became owners of about nineteen hundred head
of cattle, and employ a number of cowboys to care for the same. Their
business interests, conducted on a very large scale, have proved profitable
and remunerative, and our subject is now numbered among the men of affluence
in the community.
On the 31st of October 1867, Mr. Campbell was united in marriage to Miss
Frances Furge, a native of Morgan County, Texas, and unto them have been born
eleven children: Annie, wife of William Jones, of Carlsbad, New Mexico;
Ellen, wife of Ed White, of Chickasha; J. L. a farmer and cattle man of
Minco; Charles, who also follows the same line of business; Tom, who is
engaged in farming and stock dealing; Molly, wife of Mils Bedingfield, an
agriculturist of Minco; Maggie, wife of Frank Jones, of Carlsbad New Mexico;
Sam Sullivan, Winnie, William and Dillars, all of whom are yet with their
parents. The family are members of the Christian church, and the members of
the household occupy an enviable position in the social circles in which they
move. In his fraternal relations Mr. Campbell is a Knight of Pythias,
belonging to the lodge at Minco. His business interests are very extensive,
and in their control he displays marked executive force and keen
discrimination, combined with unflagging industry.
